Glamour has kicked off celebrations for their 2017
“Women of the Year” summit in November with
covers featuring the famous and influential women who will be
awarded—that includes the organizers of the Women’s
March, and they look just great.

The accompanying article, written by Jezebel
founder Anna Holmes, goes into the history of the March, and
celebrates the work of Tamika D. Mallory, Bob Bland, Linda
Sarsour and Carmen Perez, as well as that of the millions of
women who demonstrated. The March itself has also grown,
becoming much more than a day of protest,
inspiring this past weekend’s Women’s Convention in Detroit.

Central to the Women’s March story in Glamour is rage:
at Trump, at injustice, and also at the shaky footing the March
initially got off too:

The anger undergirding the creation of the growing coalition
was not without endemic complications. Women of color noted
that some white women who were quick to don pink hats had
been absent from demonstrations like Black Lives Matter
rallies, which centered on the ways in which black and brown
bodies are often first on the line. “You don’t just get to
join because now you’re scared too,” the activist ShiShi Rose
posted on the Women’s March Facebook
page
. “I was born scared.”

And now the story has transformed into these public faces of
women leadership, on both magazines and in the street.
Glamour seems to have high hopes for what they’ll do
next.
